Bio and Links
Bio Photo Because of fires, floods and loss, I started photographing all the markers in Jackson Co Michigan in Nov 2006. We've discovered the 1927 DAR WPA cemetery transcription project didn't have anyone actually walk any of the county cemeteries. They obtained the information from cemetery records, church records and neighbors. Fortunately for all of us this included records of those graves with no markers. Most of the early cemetery records have perished along with some of the cemeteries. Hopefully, we will be able to provide info for descendants of the early/current residents of Jackson County Michigan. By using census, marriage, death and local history information we try to make our entries as complete as possible. Email with info on your ancestors and we'll add them to any of our records. We'll be happy to help you in your search.

Currently, I'm working on adding maiden names to as many memorials as possible.

As of 22 Aug 2009 Jackson Co FAG volunteers have 66,501 burials recorded, by Jan 2010 72,323 burials and by Jan 2013 101,483 burials. Many of the cemeteries have been completed with pics.

Please request edits, corrections & transfers thru the SAC tab (edit tab on the memorial page) and not here on the home page. Remember to check the new "edit" tab on your own homepage to see the corrections/additions sent to you.

Thanks to all those FAGer's who have trusted me to take care of their memorials and have transferred their memorials over to me while they take a leave from findagrave.

Not sure why my email disappeared from the contact info:

Thank you for the transfer. I have found first name spelled two ways. Hope that his nephew will be able to provide the correct one.

Thanks again

Thank you so much for the transfer. My sister and I visited the Norvell Cemetery.We cleaned up the gravestones and found a Bible verse on my great grandfather grave.

It was great seeing where they were buried and it was all because of your effort.

Thank you

First of all, I want to thank you for transferring all the Maurer's memorials over to me. I am so grateful for your kindness.

However, I am more grateful for all your time and effort you have given recording all the cemeteries and taking the time to add maiden names and etc. Especially now after visiting Michigan to do genealogy. I was so frustrated. The libraries had little or no information on birth, deaths or cemeteries. Most of them said go on line.

So, I just want to say the Michigan people that they are so LUCKY to have you and your fellow workers to give all your time and effort to help them find their families.

My hat is off to you. You should be proud for doing a great service for us.

God Bless,

Hi Deb,
I have Reasners in my family tree, so I am aware that there are two spellings out there. Even within my line! Thank you for letting me know the cemetery records differ from the death certificates. I put a note on both profiles. Hopefully descendants will search both spellings to find their ancestors. Thank you for taking the time to note this issue.

The change in the year on her date of death to 1964 was probably a good reason as to why I did not locate her obituary in the Jackson Citizen Patriot at the Jackson Library several years ago. If you get the chance when you visit the library, please look this one up.
